All the Tumblr feels and/or nudes/pizza.

The following is what happened in my brain while browsing Tumblr this afternoon.

Let Me Take A SelfieWho’s this? This person with the humps on his stomach where my stretch marks and belly are? What are these things? I’ve not seen these things before, but I have a strange urge to touch them.

Huh. Maybe I should start working out. Maybe I should at least shower. I haven’t showered in a while.

Nah, I smell alright. 

Oh, look, an ad for Pizza Hut. Those new crusts sure looks good—or gross… I’m really not sure. Nah, I’m gonna go eat a salad. I should lose some weight. I mean, I did have yogurt for breakfast and went on a walk today.

What’s MyFitnessPal say? Oh, that walk only bought me an extra 140 calories? What even is this shit? Fuck it.

I’m ordering pizza. If I get too fat, I’ll qualify for a gastric sleeve, right? Then I can get late-in-life-Al-Roker skinny. This girl at work is doing that Optifast thing Oprah did. I wonder…. Well, I already have this PizzaHut.com tab open. There really isn’t any going back. 

Love

Never mind, I’ll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you, too
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead

I’m singing this to the pizza. It’s setting on the table by my laptop as I type this. Don’t think this was all for laughs. This is based on a true story. Heavily based on a true story. Or, rather, happened a few hours ago.

Young Avengers

I mean, look at those freaking teenage super heroes. Every single one of them is incredibly attractive. And, in that ideal-body-type-kid-of-a-way. Oh, all those Young Avengers feels. But, that’s a story for a different day. I’m going to go back to shame-eating this pizza while my cat looks on and judges me.

TV Tracking with a Strange British Site

When you first load up PogoDesign.co.uk/cat you end up on a very unassuming website with a list of show that are on this month and a series of check boxes. What this site lets you do, however, is create a cross-platform web calendar with the premiere info for all the shows you want to track. This is super handy now that so many popular shows are on cable and can debut any time of the year. Just pick out your shows and you can throw the iCal link into Google Calendar or most other calendar apps.

Trying Weeds Again

While season 6 of weeds was on the air, the one that opens with the dead lady in the pool, I stopped caring about the show to the extent that I can’t really remember anything that happened. I think there was a hotel at one point? Watching those episodes really just made me go numb and relax into the ridiculousness. Sure, there was always an aire of crazy wafting about the plots in Weeds, but the dialog and wit were so on point that it distracted me.

Then, as the show began spiraling out of control and Celia Hodes began appearing less and less, I just didn’t care anymore. All the same, I’m a completionist (when it comes to TV) and knew that one day I would have to finish the series. So, here I sit, watching the final two seasons of Weeds as one of the shows I’m watching between my graduation from UGA and my return to the full-time work force (as the head of PR and web development for a small ISP/IT company) upon the dawning of the new year.

As a word of warning, I’m not even done with the show yet. I’m on S8:E7. Though, I doubt it will matter. Perhaps the most important thing is that they brought back the theme song and covers with Season 8. I also know the premise of the finale, so I do plan to revisit that in a separate piece. This one, however, is just to say that Season 8 is better than 7 so far. I shall remain an optimist until the end!

Also, Season 7’s first handful of eps gave me a bit of the Orange is the New Black vibe. Less refined, yes–but, I could feel it in there. I’ll revisit this world again once I finish it all off with those epilogue-style episodes (my least favorite way to end a show, by the way).

That thing downtown that was going to be a Wal-Mart and then wasn’t isn’t going to be anything.

This is a selfmade image from the english wiki...

Progressive opponents to the Selig complex that would ruin traffic coming into downtown from the Eastside are ringing the victory bell. This is all well and good, but that land is still for sale and it’s still a sought-after piece of potential development gold. Something is going to happen there.

For one, I hope it involves a grocery store since living on East Broad St a few years ago without a car created a conundrum for me when I wanted to buy food. I also hope it involves widening Oconee Street, because the idea of more traffic at the 5-way intersection that marks the eastern boundary of downtown makes my heart begin to palpitate.

Though, an area of town that can barely keep a bar alive over its first summer might have some trouble sustaining retail outlets with what is rumored to include 100% less parking after certain proposed regulations pass. So, nothing might come of this after all. Or, maybe they’ll just raze it all and build yet another giant luxury apartment complex.
